What Can't Our Eyes See?

Technically, you can see air.

I suppose a modified analogy would be in order "You can't see the trees for the forest."

Against a background of a vacuum, if you were to release atmosphere, you can see it very clearly. The problem here on earth is, releasing air into air... well, you can't see the difference for obvious reasons.

Just look up. The fact that you can't see the black of space tells you atmosphere can be seen.

As for other things you can't see... the eye can only see that which the nerves can translate into a readable waveform. The optic section of your brain can only operate within certain parameters.... your eyes are in fact seeing infrared, ultraviolet and other spectra... but your brain and optic nerves can't interpret the results.

Go look at a black light... (err... look NEAR it, UV is damaging to the eyes!), the area around the black light becomes extremely hard to see. Mostly because your eyes are receiving way too much light on the UV spectrum to get a good view of other spectra. Your optics obviously can't interpret the UV spectra, hence, what would normally appear as a bright light near the UV light, becomes dim to the observer.

When you look into just how much is out there the human eye cannot interpret, it becomes mind boggling.

One user said something to the effect of "There is no aura around a person".
Every person has a self contained magnetic field. It's weak, but it's there. And that field does in fact fluctuate with the electro-chemical responses within the body.
A waveform is produced through a fluctuating magnetic field... at the right frequencies, it is perceived as light.
Humans do have something akin to an Aura around them... but it's far too weak, and way too chaotic in fluctuation to place on a specific area of the spectrum line.
So in essence, you just can't see it.

You can see the effect of it if you configure a oscilloscope correctly, and sit in a well shielded room.

I worked with Tempest electronics, and we had to test them in a shielded room with sensitive EM measurement equipment. By watching the equipment, you know when someone is in the testing room because the equipment picks up on that persons internal electrical responses.

All in all, if you're eyes were able to see every waveform out there... you'd be incapable of getting through your day. You'd practically be blinded by some of the waveforms artificially produced for communications purposes.

How about some links to some expert who claims / verifies this other than just your word?

No. Auras don't exist. Please enlighten us with a scientific study that outlines their existence.

Auras do exist and they can be seen with Kirlian photography. Wikipedia says so
so bash them not me

You will probably comment on the (paranormal) tag. I'm not happy about that tag. Kirlian photography is like Xray photography and infrared vision, etc; it sees something the naked eye can't see. I see it as proof of auras.

Well i am sure you have heard that story of when the first English settlers arrived on the shore of the U.S.A, the American Indians couldn't physically see the boats arriving because it was to "out there" to even comprehend. I guess this goes for what your saying too.


I've never heard of that before? Got a source or something?

Well, It could be used in the same concept along with ghosts, for alot of people, its way too out there and they dont believe they exist, so we dont see them, or the non-believers anyway.

Just a thought.

Not crap, it stems from quantum mechanics. We are but wavicles moving through the universe, therefore each carrying a frequency

There are also people (including scientists) that believe that we are vibrating in a certain frequency that doesn't allow us to see things right in front of our eyes such as aliens who are said to be vibrating in a frequency just beyond our own.

As for what we can and can't see, it remains to be seen.

i like what you say to me frequency is a universal language what you say resonates big time within me first there was sound then symbol then word
frequency the unversal heart beat

I would guess that story is false. Of course they could see boats.

While it's possible some people can see aura and all that stuff, it's highly unlikely.

Everything in the universe that has momentum, has a frequency associated with it. Objects that have large momenta, like people, have negligible frequencies.

If our most complex machines can't even pick this up, what chance does a person stand?

The finding could lead to aircraft that look like Wonder Woman's plane. Such planes could have wings of glass or something called metallic glass, rather than being totally invisible.

I know a woman here in Bulgaria who is a very well-known healer. Her eyes are like x-rays. She can see abnormalities in the human organism. Because she has a medical education she also diagnoses almost with 100% accuracy. In addition, she remembers every single one of the people who have gone to her for help. Once, I witnessed her telling about 30 people, some of whom went to see her for the first time years ago, what was their problem back then and what is it now. No one of these people said she was wrong.
